For the Love of Flowers Blog Hop & Giveaway

Palm Springs Fabrics by Benartex
Today is the first day of the  Flower Favorites Blog Hop.

Flower Favorites Blog Hop
I was invited to make a block using any Benartex fabrics, as long as the block said "flowers." Since I was on a tight schedule, I chose to work with some Fossil Fern hexies (no kidding!) I had already completed.

Two inch EPP hexies using Fossil Ferns
The Hop lasts for a week and includes a lot of inspiration. Go see what I've done at the Sew in Love with Fabric blog. Then come back and tell me about it. IF YOU ARE A FOLLOWER of their blog, let me know. You are entered into the contest to win a fat quarter bundle of Palm Springs (there are 38 different fabrics - not just the three I chose to feature today).

If you visit their Facebook page and "like" them (or already follow them on Facebook), let me know that, too. You can enter to win a second time.

Contest is over May 6th. Make sure I have your email (Google accounts automatically show up). You have two chances to win: Follow Benartex on either their Facebook page (1 chance) and/or Blog page (2nd chance). Those are the rules (which I didn't make up).

  32. Love your hop block! Question for you... did you just simply straight stitched the hexies to the background very close to the edge, or did you use a blind hem stitch? I looks like just a straight stitch in the photo, but I am blind (read blonde LOL) so I thought I should ask :) Thank you for sharing your idea with us!

  83. Debby, I thought it was so interesting that you didn't need to take out your basting stitches--I never thought of that, but it would definitely save some time.
